- 2 Cubes Butter
- 1/2 Cup Honey
- 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
- 1 Pinch Nutmeg
- Soften the 2 cubes of butter and place in a mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl. I have found that using a stand mixer works best for this part. Mix the ingredients until they are well incorporated. After they are mixed well, use the whisk attachment to the mixer to slightly whip the mixture. Place in a covered container and cool in the fridge. Use this to top toast, scones, or many other desserts, and dishes. Enjoy!
I’m not sure how popular this stuff is outside of Utah, but what I do know is that Utahns go crazy for this stuff. The most popular topping for a scone has to be honey butter. You can check out my recipe for scones HERE: There are a lot of takes, and flavors from different people, but my way is to make sure the honey shines. This stuff ain’t healthy, that’s for sure. It sure is delicious though!
For those of you out there that may have not had honey butter before, it isn’t too complicated. It isn’t much more than what the name indicates. The base is made from butter, and it is accompanied by delicious honey! In family, we are luck because my dad raises honey bees as a hobby. This means we have an abundance of honey and plenty of uses for it! If you don’t have fresh honey on hand, the stuff from the store, even the fake stuff will work fine for honey butter. The benefit to making your own honey butter is the price. Store bought honey butter tends to be kind of pricey. The homemade stuff is just all that much better tasting too!
I won’t write too much more here, as it is a super simple recipe. I hope you all enjoy!
